Accessible and secure bicycle parking encourages people to get where they need to go on their bicycle. A variety of parking options can be found in Columbus.
The City installs bike racks in public right-of-way upon request from local businesses. A business or property can request a bike rack via the
311 Call Center. Click "Submit a New Service Request", search for "bike racks", then click "Install Bike Racks".
Bike Parking Shelters
Bike shelters provide some protection from rain and hot sun making for a more enjoyable parking experience. Each shelter has been outfitted with either a green roof or bicycle information panels and a maintenance station. In addition, they increase awareness that Columbus supports the use of bicycles for transportation.

Bike Parking Corrals
Bike corrals are on-street bike parking facilities where bike racks are installed on the pavement either in unused "dead zones" or where a motor vehicle parking space has been converted. This allows greater bike parking in areas where sidewalks are too narrow to accommodate enough bike racks for the demand.
